Inflammation Of Your Brain
Most of you are aware of inflammation which effects your physical body functions, well your reason for any brain malfunction your experiencing is also a victim of inflammation in your brain. This is a protective response from your brain and body to what your immune system feels is an enemy or threat to your health, there are two types you experience. You will experience either acute or chronic depending on the threat which is invading your immune system, acute is a short-term and chronic is a long-term threat. Acute is usually experienced as what physicians refer to as allergies. Chronic usually is referred as chronic illness or disease. As for me, I am unfortunate enough to have experienced both of these more than twenty years. In my opinion, the brain type is much more difficult to cope with than the physical symptoms. I learned to cope with my physical symptoms in a much shorter time span, the triggers seemed much more obvious and easier to avoid. When your experiencing the mental symptoms, your not mentally healthy enough to think clearly to overcome your symptoms. Also for me, the mental symptoms were so much more scary, which gave me high anxiety and panic attacks.
Main Causes Of Our Mental Symptoms
The main causes of our mental symptoms are sadly all around us and pretty much impossible to totally avoid, the processed foods we consume are one of our main triggers. Processed foods are mainly nothing but, chemicals (preservatives) with a mixture of sugar and sodium plus some fat. Other triggers are the chemical toxins in the products we use everyday, cosmetic and hygiene products are also high in chemicals, which add to trigger our mental malfunctioning. To make things even worse for ourselves, we become addicted to bad habits such as smoking, alcohol and drugs. All of these add up as time goes by, eventually causing us the mental symptoms we are experiencing today. I do not believe for one minute age has anything to do with these symptoms, I truly believe the reason is because it just takes that amount of time exposing ourselves to all these triggers before our symptoms become severe. If it was just a part of aging, why would some folks be experiencing these mental symptoms while others are not at the same age?
Diseases Caused By Our Lifestyle Today
Since we are exposed to all these unhealthy chemicals and toxins most of our lives, these in my opinion are the causes for the mental diseases we are experiencing big time today. Just some of these diseases are Alzheimers, Dementia, Brain Tumors, Memory Problems and even Depression now is believed to be possibly caused by the inflammation in the brain. Besides these diseases which are becoming wide spread today, I believe we should be focusing on limiting the chemicals and toxins we are exposing ourselves too rather than searching for a cure. The cause is the cure for this problem we are facing, why the medical, food and drug organizations are not facing this fact and addressing the problem is beyond me.
At this time the only treatment available is to live as healthy as we possibly can, limit our exposure to the chemicals and toxins as much as we can. Supplements has been found to help many people improve their brain power and functioning, of course this is not the cure. If you live a unhealthy lifestyle, all the supplements in the world is not going to change your mental functioning. You do not have to experience these symptoms as a part of getting older, that is just the authorities way of escaping the true reason people are suffering today. Even children are now experiencing more and more mental problems and diseases, behavioral problems and just plain poor health. I truly believe the chemicals and toxins are just man’s way of slowly poisoning us, sadly they are not only poisoning us but also poisoning our future generations.
I do believe supplementing is something we must do today to maintain our health, everyone you know is lacking the vitamins and minerals their bodies require to function properly. I suggest limiting the consumption of processed foods, consume more produce and grass-fed meats is a good idea as well. Possibly its not gluten which is the problem as we are lead to believe, possibly it is just that the gluten foods are higher in chemicals than the gluten-free foods. This is just a thought I have been considering the past few years since I have had to go gluten-free myself, actually today I am not consuming very many processed foods. The reason is not really by choice, but the gluten-free processed foods are much higher in price than the gluten processed foods. Since I am on fixed income, the only way I can afford enough food each month is to limit my purchases of gluten-free processed foods. Maybe this is a blessing for my health, since now I am healthier than I have probably been my entire life. As always I encourage you to leave your comments, as well if you have any questions for me I welcome them and will answer them to my best ability.
